The Top 50 Baby Cribs: Tips for Choosing the Best

by Caitlin McCormack | Last Updated Jan. 14th, 2016

Newborns can sleep up to 20 hours a day, so you want to ensure the crib you choose is a solid and sturdy model.

In the past, drop-sided cribs were a major safety concern for the potential to pinch and trap digits and arms, as well as the potential for dropping when older children pushed on them if not properly secured. As such, drop-sided cribs have been banned for sale in the US since 2011.

It’s important that parents always practice safe sleeping habits including putting your newborn on their back to sleep and not adding anything extra to the sleeping area, including sheets, stuffed animals, pillows or blankets. Crib bumpers are also unnecessary, especially for infants who cannot move around on their own. Even though they are still commonly included in many crib bedding sets, they pose both a suffocation and strangulation hazard. The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages their use as it may be a potential SIDS risk.

With the above in mind, in no particular order, here are 50 of the best baby cribs based on available features and average customer ratings and reviews.
